Forbes golfers continue to enjoy both the sunny conditions and the course condition, with 88 players contesting the Men’s com- petition on Saturday, 25th April, sponsored by LINX.
Division One had Ethan Gaffney rocet ahead with a nett 59, due more to his powerful tee to green play. Runner-up was Martin Cahill with 64 nett, on count back from Doug Churchill. Division Two was won by John Ridley with 63 nett, and on count back from Bede Tooth.
The ball sweep went to 70 nett on count back, again, with 26 players collecting balls. Check in the Pro Shop to see if you were successful.
Good to see Merv Lowing, a recently joined member from Orbost, have a good round. Good to see Alf Watts getting some practice in too. Current arrangements make it difficult for our ‘plus’ golfers to rise to the top, but good scores were returned by John Betland, gross 65 and Ben Gear, gross 67.
The Sunday Stableford Medley was quiet, with Warwick Wright of Parkes winning on 40 points.
On Tuesday, a field of 13 players zipped around the course. The results saw winners Geoff Drane and Barry Parker scoring 31 points. John Whatmore managed to anchor all the other scores.
The Thursday Vets had another roll-up day, in which 13 players participated. Of the scores reported the best was Tom Edols with 26 points. Next week the Vets will run a $3 competition, with ‘Winner-takes- all.’
The first week of the Winter 9-Hole Individual Nett competition saw a brace of low scores from the 39 players. The Voucher winners were, D McGroder with 30.5 nett and A M Gaffney with 30 nett.
Changes have had to be made to the Men’s and Ladies Competition Programmes, so check at the Pro Shop to see what is on.
